Virtual Tours of AVAs with Raptor Ridge
Mar 27 – Apr 29 all day

Raptor Ridge makes vineyard designated wines from 4 of the Willamette Valley’s nested AVAs.  We focus on one AVA each week over the next month with video interviews, photos and notes about each vineyard that comprises a 3-pack of wine we are selling from each sub-region.

We will cover 4-AVAs over the next month of shut-in time in order to take viewers on a virtual tour of Oregon wine country:  Eola-Amity Hills, Yamhill-Carlton, McMinnville, and the Chehalem Mtns.  We start in the south and work our way homeward to our Estate.

Interviews with each Vineyard Owner & Manager are focused on 3 things:  The Soil, The Micro-climate, and the Culture or Philosophy of how we (together) approach managing the blocks.   We hope to spend 5 to no more than 10 minutes with each Vineyard on a “zoom call” recorded video that gets posted on our website.

Here is some overview material and then a link to the first in the series, with Tim Ramey of Zenith vineyard.
